Costa Rica Family Wildlife Holiday

It is Costa Rica’s wildlife and incredible landscapes that make it such a special place, and the Costa Rican people work hard to protect the diverse species that coexist within their borders. This means that there are some incredible tourism experiences on offer for you and your family to enjoy! From helping hatching turtles make their journey to the sea, to spotting lazy sloths high up in the trees, Costa Rica is a truly immersive safari experience.

HighlivesPrice: From £2300 per person

Start your tour in Tortuguero, home to green, hawksbill, loggerhead, and leatherback turtles and only accessible by boat or air. Cruise the Tortuguero Canals and spot manatees, caimans and crocodiles. From there, journey to Sarapiqui, the biodiverse rich area of Costa Rica that is one of the few remaining homes of the endangered Green Macaw. As you continue to traverse central Costa Rica and pass by the impressive Poas and Arenal volcanoes, you will visit the La Paz Waterfall Gardens, a rescue wildlife reserve with over 100 species of animals. The final part of your tour will take you to the beautiful Manuel Antonio National Park, with its rich, green rainforests and white-sand beaches. Here you will not only have the chance to spot a host of wildlife, including monkeys, sloths, raccoons and iguanas, but also enjoy a day at Adrenaline Canopy Adventures  where you will follow a canopy course made up of 18 platforms, 10 zip lines, 2 rappel lines, a suspension bridge and a Tarzan swing.

Costa Rica has one of the greatest concentrations of wildlife in the world and its variety of weird and wonderful species are guaranteed to fascinate travellers of all ages. This tour takes you to some of the best places in Costa Rica to see wildlife, with plenty of adventure along the way. The price listed is based on standard, family-friendly accommodation options, however we always work with a wide range of hotels and can advise on accommodation upgrades to add that extra level of luxury.
